Nice sled. Looks familiar. For a quick stop, gas or trailside break. Kill switch. For lunch, pitstop, overnight, kill switch then key. The battery won't go dead if you only use kill switch.

We got some snow so I had to go test it out! My other sleds were upset they did not get to go play in the snow!

Nice 75 SnoTwister. Drove one of those for 10 years. Ended up with a TXL motor and an early 80's Skidoo suspension and home made IFS. Wish I had a photo of that sled.

Me too.. Got in the habit with a 90 Yamaha Phazer that had a finicky kill switch and after several sleds, I always use the key. Electric start or not.

Quick jump in. Just noticed this on my '15 Indy 600 after studding last year. Studs only stick 3/16" over paddles. Stiffen suspension or a way to block suspension up a little tighter?

You can add tunnel protectors at the rear of the tunnel only to help with that.

Is this a crossover tube for the cooling system or just a brace for stiffening the rear? Should I be concerned for coolant leaks from the gashes?

It has coolant in it. If it's not leaking now you might be ok. Maybe put some epoxy "jb weld" or something over it. Definitely need to install protectors.
